  • Guardians of the Galaxy does the impossible. Through dazzle and dumb luck, it turns the clichés of comic-book films on their idiot heads and hits you like an exhilarating blast of fun-fun-fun. It's insanely, shamelessly silly – just one reason to love it. show more

  • Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty much where action movies are these days - a combination of comedy without wit, action without drama and elaborate visuals that are nothing much to look at. show more

  • With its introduction of wonderfully memorable characters and blend of humor, action and catchy tunes, Guardians is perfectly pitched escapist fun. show more

    It's really nothing that separates this movie from others, the plot line is basic, they use comedy in unneeded situations,etc.It's touche seeing this movie because it's so similar to other super hero movies, to be successful in the movie business you just need a good CGI coordinator, but that topic is for another day. Marvel released this movie basically to introduce the crowd to the Guardians but they had to do it in 2 hours so alot of time was wasted with them fighting the same person, being in prison etc. I don't understand why this movie gets so much praise, Americans will pay to watch the same thing over and over. They released it so the audience would know who they are in the Avengers 3(although they didn't release an Ant Man movie yet and him not having a background in A MOVIE ABOUT ULTRON defies the comics) because if they stick to the comics (SPOILER)the Guardians should fight with the Avengers to stop Thanos when he gets the gems. But overall it gets a 6/10, because it's Deja Vu

    I loved it!! It is everything you want in a movie. Lots of actions, funny lines, and great special effects. Chris Pratt was perfect in this role and who doesn't love the tree and his buddy the raccoon??!! So much fun this movie was and I can't wait for the next one!! Go see it!!

    The special effects were well done but the story and dialogue was terrible. The characters were so superficial that as a viewer I was not engaged. This film is very overrated.
